Easy Sweetheart French Palmier Cookies
1 package of frozen Puff pastry, defrost according to directions on the box. Be very careful not to let the dough come to room temperature
1/4 to 2/3 cups granulated sugar, may need more or less
Pink chocolate buttons/drops/melts
Sprinkles, if desired
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Line 2 baking pans with parchment paper.
On a clean counter or cutting board, liberally sprinkle with granulated sugar.
Take ONE of the thawed puff pastry sections out of the package (the box comes with 2 sections) and lay it on top of the sugar.
Sprinkle the pastry liberally with more sugar.
Roll the pastry into a rectangle of just over an 1/8″ thickness.
Working from a long side, roll it together, not tight, but snug to the middle.
Repeat this with the other side, so that both rolls meet in the middle.
Mark at 1/2″ then slice the puff pastry.
Place the cookies onto the parchment, allowing space, about 2-3″ apart.
Loosen the middle of the dough and pinch the ends together to form a heart.
